Odesza Unveil Highly-Anticipated Album 'The Last Goodbye'

GRAMMY-nominated duo ODESZA returns in full force with the release of their first album in 5+ years: ‘The Last Goodbye’. Released via Foreign Family Collective/Ninja Tune, it’s a record which bridges together the power of nostalgia and the duo’s roots, with cutting edge production and cinematic soundscapes.

With singles like the title track "The Last Goodbye" featuring the legendary Bettye LaVette and the recent Ólafur Arnalds collab, “Light Of Day”, receiving acclaim from the likes of NY Times and Billboard, ‘The Last Goodbye’ is a stirring collection rife with brightness and emotion, wistful yet rooted in the present. With additional guest appearances by Julianna Barwick, Izzy Bizu, Charlie Houston, The Knocks, Låpsley & MARO, the record is sweeping in nature, delicately and deftly crafted by the duo, as they create a score that mirrors the cyclic nature of life and interconnection.

Following the monumental success around their GRAMMY-nominated last album ‘A Moment Apart’, the new LP is an experience that speaks to themes of connection, reminiscence, and the impact we impart on one another. It’s a vivid celebration of the people and moments that have left their mark on our existences, reverberating throughout the record in the form of interwoven samples from personal home movies and childhood memories, showcasing the origins of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight juxtaposed against the bold, boundary-pushing production techniques they have become synonymous with.

On the album, the band notes: “5 years later and we are here: ‘The Last Goodbye’. It’s an album that is centered around the power of connection. While writing it, we began to realize just how impacted and inspired we are by the people around us. How we impart pieces of ourselves onto others and carry that influence with us onward – that we echo out through one another. It’s been an awareness that we hadn’t fully grasped, and in coming to appreciate it, we wanted this project to honor our loved ones and our sense of community.

‘The Last Goodbye’ is about stepping back in, returning to each other in celebration. It’s meant to be a shared record: one we hope that listeners can experience together, with friends, dancing and rejoicing in that sense of interconnection after so much time apart.”

With over 5 billion total streams, ODESZA have masterfully reemerged to remind the world what has made the duo of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight cornerstones of the modern electronic landscape. Their last album ‘A Moment Apart’ was not only a commercial success (going gold and debuting at no. 3 on the Billboard 200), but it also earned critical acclaim including two GRAMMY nominations and praise from the likes of NPR, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Complex, Consequence and more. 

The duo has cultivated a diehard fanbase of massive proportions: known for their groundbreaking, awe-inspiring and immersive live performance, which exceeded 2.85 million fans over the course of their ‘A Moment Apart’ tour. They also have had headline performances at the likes of Coachella, Lollapalooza and more, as well as beloved festivals in Asia, We The Fest (Indonesia) and Good Vibes Festival (Malaysia) along with headline shows in Singapore.
